Our school has a school-wide classroom matrix. The matrix is posted throughout the building. It is posted in the bathrooms, hallways, gym, cafeteria, library, art room, music room, office, and every classroom. Our PBIS team and classroom teachers came up with the matrix through many meetings and observations.
The four major "Be's" are Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Prepared, and Be Your Best. Each classroom has the matrix with expectations posted. After careful discussion and LOTS of practice, each teacher develops an additional classroom matrix. I have included my classroom matrix below.
I have this chart posted in my classroom. As a class, we also created the same matrix on chart paper. We will refer to this matrix for rules and procedures throughout the school year.

In addition to PBIS, I award students with Build Your Rainbow. The rainbow behavior chart was inspired from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten. Click here to see how she uses it in her classroom.
It is a positive visual for my students to view behavior. When students complete their rainbow, they get to visit the "pot of gold". The pot of gold is the prize box. In the prize box, students can choose from pencils, candy, small toys, or other items. It is not a lot, but the children are proud of whatever it is they earned.
